On August 7, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky phoned Russian President Vladimir Putin over the death of Ukrainian soldiers following the announced truce regime on July 21. He said this during a briefing after an emergency meeting over the death of 4 Ukrainian soldiers in the war zone in Donbas.
“In the morning, I talked to Putin. Urgently called him and said that it does not bring us closer to peace. I said I ask you to influence the other side so they stop killing our people,” Zelensky said.
The second question, according to Zelensky, is the demining of territories and “need to shorten the construction time of the bridge in the village of Lugansk.” The presidents also discussed the release of the prisoners.
“We had a long conversation,” the head of state added.
Zelensky also said that he would have a conversation with the French president in connection with the escalation in the Donbas.
“We need to urgently meet the leaders of the Channel Four, look into each other’s eyes and end the war,” Zelensky said.
Zelensky did not say what Putin said.
